Rapid expansion in adoptions and use of mobile devices in schools has the potential to impact almost every aspect of education. A new report, "Mobile Technology for K-12 Education," sponsored by mobile learning company, Amplify, and conducted by education market research experts at IESD, reveals details about the current status of mobile technology in our schools. The question is, what are publishers and developers who serve the school market doing in terms of their product marketing plans and their sales approaches as we move away from the a textbook centric K-12 sales environment to an environment where smartphones, tablets, and other mobile computing devices are the primary delivery envelope? Host Glen McCandless asks K-12 market researcher, Jay Sivin-Kachala, of IESD, to provide his perspective.
What's the best way to sell to schools? It's the topic of greatest interest for everyone who wants to succeed in the K-12 education market. Many newcomers would like to find a low-cost entry, and the idea of using independent reps or resellers is popular. What have experts learned about this sales approach? What do you need to know to be successful working with K-12 channel partners? Join host Glen McCandless for a 15-minute interview with two veterans of K-12 sales, Farimah Schuerman and Mitch Weisburgh of Academic Business Advisors.

The host at SevsDeadSerious has been watching the abject failure of the Philadelphia School District; one that I taught in and one that my wife currently administrates in, continues to fail the young people of the city by chronic under-funding over the last 4 years due to the total neglect and closeted racism of the Republican led houses of legislature, as well as the state house with state idiot-in-chief Tom Corbett, who judging by his appointments give great credence to the addage of "white privledge" (ever notice how many privledged white guys deny white privledge...just sayin), leading to the current apocalyptic state of the Philadelphia schools. While yes the state has shown itself to be racist, the fed should also look at the overall state of education in America under the tutelage of the tall, former basketball player who graduated from Harvard and has done next-to-nothing as the Secretary of Education, save for some REALLY cute photo-ops with cute little kids...as for doing anything substantive, not so much. The kid in Philly wakes up every morning know that the state and federal government see them as having little value and reward them with even less opportunity. Like climate change, you can't just close your eyes and it will go away.
A new study shows the shift from print books to ebooks is accelerating, the most dramatic change in the K-12 market in a century. Is education marketing or selling to schools a priority for you? If so, do not miss this interview with the publisher of this important education market research study. Everyone in the school market will be impacted by the eBook wave. Ride it or be drowned by it!

Recorded on Dashiell Hammett’s birthday, the Write Pack explore the schools, tropes, and clichés of the mystery genre, Why does there always have to be a murder? What are the sub-genres or schools or subgenres of the mystery genre? Do the crimes always have to be solved by a little old lady with no background in police work from a town where the murder victims outstrip the population of the town? What are some of the rules? What separates the subgenres? What are courtroom genres? What are police procedural stories? What are hardboiled mysteries? Why do detective characters have to be broken? What are crime novels? What separates the mystery from the adventure novel or are they separate?
Does there always need to be a sidekick? Do we always need justice? Do we always need the group of suspects gathered together in the drawing room or the court room for the criminal to be discovered? Is the evidence always quickly analyzed by the forensic lab?
You can find Write Pack Radio on Facebook, Twitter, Blog Talk Radio and iTunes. Please send us on Blog Talk Radio, Facebook or Twitter any comments or questions you would like to see in our future shows.
